    Everything i read says spin content or use fresh content. I created hundreds of pages testing the difference. my results are far better with duplicate content. As in just changing Htags& Pg. titles... All main content on page is same... anyone else with same experience? :cool:

    Correct, you only have to change the title to get the content unique. Evertything still works - duplicate, autogenerated, unreadable content. If you know how to make it convert you never have to pay for content.

    But at this time where is Google's Penalty for duplicate content?
    I say you should wait some more days,you will see the result.

    Google doesn't penalize for duplicate content. If the content you duplicated comes from a higher authority page and website than yours, you will just not rank as high as the other.

    I don't care if copied content ranks better, I'll stick with quality unique content. Ranking is worthless if bounce rate is high and conversion is low.

    It may be temporary..
    Make as much as you can before its too late, if the results you mentioned have some commercial output

    You may be right but the main reason is that you cannot use adsense with these blogs.Eventually they get banned. Since adsense is the users first priority of generating some income.
    Other wise there are news sites who are publishing the same content and still keeping constant good rankings.

    How long have they ranked though? Wait and see if the duplicates get slapped eventually. Could take a few weeks or more.

    If you aren't monetizing with Adsense or Media, you might be fine for awhile, sooner or later though those pages will get smacked.

    See how your site is faring a few months down the line. I wouldn't expect it to hold.

    Agreed. It sounds idiotic off the start of it. Even if it works now it wouldn't be useful on anything but churn and burn projects because Google isn't retarded. And frankly I'd be shocked if it worked ATM even. I would not risk any of my sites on it.

    i have to say Google search engine are more prefer the refresh content, it is more attractive for it
    so i suggest you create some by yourself
    of course, if you do not have enough time, using some spinner to help you
    find content is also ok, and if you want to get more traffic, you'd better change something
    there are some content tools for you to choose such as spinnerchief, tbs, content machine, wish you have a
    try, spinnerchief has free verision

    Don't you think that there is a reason not to use the duplicate content? Real reason. Let's just wait...

    Penguin is still not rolling for a lot of countries (panda and other bastards too). But for english sites the results you see will be for short time.
